And a slap upside the head!
I was walking into Walmart today (don't even start about that) when I heard some man yell "SHUT UP!" really, really loud. As I turn the corner into the store, I see the man pushing a mostly empty cart containing a 2-year-old and an infant outside toward the parking lot. The 2-year-old is wailing.
Right after this, I hear him tell her "Stop! I'm so f-ing sick of hearing it!" (Yes, I censored myself.)
Seriously? That's how you talk to your children? I know that the caliber of people that shop at Walmart aren't always sharpest tool in the shed, but is that an excuse to talk to a child that way? I just wanted give him a good backhand. And a swift kick in the arse.
But I guess that wouldn't really teach him a lesson, would it?
